is considered shouting. Lower case please.

Now.

Are you running Windows 3.1 on a Tandy/Radio Shack PC? Did you notice the Tip above where you typed your message? It says:

Mcs, More Information Please...

First, please don't type in ALL CAPITAL letters. It's hard to read and is considered "shouting". Thanks.

Is this a "brand name" computer? If so, which brand and which model number?

What type of "Recovery Disk" are you speaking of? Is this a Windows XP-only disk which only contains the operating system...or does it include ALL of the software that came with the computer from the factory? Most full Recovery Disks include all software and drivers installed at the factory. Placing the Recovery CD in the drive, then restarting the computer will allow for a full format and reinstall.

Hope this helps.
